CHICAGO (AP) -Houston's Lance Berkman, who earlier in the day was suspended by major league baseball for his outburst following an ejection earlier in the week, was ejected again Friday night in the top of the fourth inning after arguing a called third strike.
Berkman was called out by home plate umpire Sam Holbrook and stopped to argue before he was ejected. A disgusted Berkman tried to go back to the plate but was stopped by teammate Carlos Lee and third base coach Doug Mansolino as manager Phil Garner argued with Holbrook.
Moments later, Garner was also ejected by Holbrook.
Berkman is appealing his two-game suspension. He was ejected Tuesday night in the eighth inning of a game at Colorado after arguing a third strike. He then threw his glove and a bag onto the field from the dugout.
He violated rules by returning in the ninth inning when the benches emptied after the Rockies' Manny Corpas hit Lee with a pitch.
